Sunflower Butterfly - Classy Cards N Such

Sorry I have been MIA lately.  I have a new little grand-daughter that had to arrive in this world earlier than planned.  She weighed 2lb. 4 oz..  I spent some time in hospital with the momma before she was sent to a larger city.  I had my 5 wk old granddaughter over night so her dad and mom could go be with them.  Various other things going on, too.   Seems like everything happens at once.   I am trying to get caught up and I will visit everyone's blog soon.

The challenge for Classy Cards N Such is to use an embossing folder to add texture to our cards.  This card went down a different path than I had planned, but that was a good thing as I do like this card.   I used the Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing.   The butterfly was made using a die by Memory Box called Willoughby Butterfly Wings.  I added rhinestones to the butterly and the border.   All of the mentioned products may be found at Classy Cards N Such store.  You may use the code Shirley-10 for a discount.

Thanks, for coming by today.
